So did it work?


I gave it a decent effort and it didn’t seem to pan out.  I’ll probably do up a “Conclusions” page later on but the informal announcement is that no, K4 does not seem vulnerable to removing the letters “kryptos”, transposing the rest and then attempting various digraphic substitution decryptions.  I say “does not seem” because I don’t have exhaustive evidence that it’s not but I have reasonable evidence that the method, as-is, will not likely be worth pursuing.

Here’s a look at the digraphs of K4 without any alterations.
